The weekend before Thanksgiving.

This weekend was the first weekend we couldn’t go up to the house together. I have to work but Sanjay and Jesse went on Saturday with a whole lot of stuff i have been collecting for years for “our Second home”  He also had to be to accept delivery of our mattresses and a charcoal Weber grill. What are we going to grill one might ask? its almost winter but i have plans, just wait and see. Sanjay came home for the night but went back on Sunday with the all 3 dogs. He was home a few hours after I got home and we spent a nice cozy evening together, looking forward to our next weekend. It’s gonna be a short work week


a four day weekend

We were quite lucky to get a four day weekend, but that is because of the cancelled Singapore trip. Nonetheless it was an eventful weekend.

We got the fence up, not we exactly but Ludwick. He is a German ex great Dane breeder, has a fear of snakes, very neat, but best of all he talks to the fence posts. 

The fence that Ludwick built

The dogs soon realized that the water is not too cold for a swim.

This is not a great picture but we purchased a Broy Hill dining table+chairs from a local Antique store.

Jeanne Boice (our realtor) and her husband Rich Boice of Boice Brothers Dairy along with their son Blaze and his friend Alex came over Saturday evening. The adults went through 5 bottle of wine and the kids drank a competitors milk. It was a fun filled evening.


Packed up and ready to go back to JC.

I won’t be going up this weekend as i have to work but we will be enjoying the goodies we bought back from the Kingston Farmers market and the Boice Milk products gifted to us by the Boice family. I am sipping the eggnog as I type.

Looking forward to Thanksgiving.

our first weekend

After picking up the dogs from our gracious dog host(she deserves her own post), we headed back to the home with the doggies in tow. Waiting for us ws a bottle of wine and a set of oars from Jeanne. So thoughtful. Did I mention we got a canoe with the house?

It was an exciting first weekend. We were examining every corner of the home and were just giddy headed with all the empty space.

Our Jersey City neighbours and friends, Latha, Krishna and their dog Luke came over on Saturday. Well i have to mention this here but Krishna was so excited about the water that he got his feet wet, horizontally. Yes he slipped into the water and sorry Krishna I still laugh till my stomach hurts.

A late lunch at Tango, and a walk around Saugerties led us to some very interesting stores including

Bill Yosh the owner of the store had rented out his home to us two years ago. We fell in love with the place and met Jeanne(our realtor) and two years later own a home right across theirs. So I guess we are all neighbours now. Super nice Bill gave us a super cool kitchen articles poster as a gift.

We had our first meal in our home on Saturday night. I initiated it but Krishna cooked. It was amazing considering we had minimal ingredients but with three bottles of wine it was all good.

Sanjay raked the leaves and cleaned the gutters this weekend. He felt very satisfied with himself and I was too.
